Vikings in Bond Street

133 New Bond Street is a very dull building probably dating from between the wars, but it has this very jolly Viking ship over the front door. I'm no expert, but isn't that bow far too full and bending back on itself to be authentic? And did any Viking ship have a mizzen sail? Or a poop deck? Pure Hollywood.
This is a crossover post with my other blog, Ornamental Passions, which is devoted to this sort of thing.
